Rating: 3/5

Ambient house pioneers the Orb (made up these days solely of founder Alex Paterson) teams up with Pink Floyd's David Gilmour on this two-track, multi-part odyssey.

While it's hardly a profound collision between Orb classics Little Fluffy Clouds and Towers of Dub, and Pink Floyd's Us and Them or Shine On You Crazy Diamond, it's an interesting and wistful listen - even if at times it verges on sounding like Floyd have turned up to play Womad.
